Laura Bee Ferguson & Andrew Gough

Embody sacred relationship with the Earth and revel in relationship with nature's greatest emissary, the Honeybee.

Laura Bee Ferguson will inspire as she shares heart-centred explorations into the Six-Fold Path of Sacred Beekeeping: Science, Sacred, History, Mystery, Art/Medicine and Activism. Sessions will include practical, ethical and forward-thinking beekeeping methodologies and hands-on experience of the art/craft/medicine of the hive as well as meditations, movement, ceremony and sacred songs, team-building, storytelling, leadership exercises and more.

Revelations around symbol, myth and metaphor will inspire our inherent legacy of nature and animal relationship. Andrew Gough's offerings include a deeper look at myths and the practices of sacred beekeepers through history, and Laura Bee will connect us to the bees living relevance within the centre of a new global paradigm. As Laura Bee says: "We can be good ancestors."
